According to our homie BlogXilla, ABC got a whopping 8.1 million people to tune in last Friday night (Nov 6) for that big Rihanna 20/20 interview with Diane Sawyer. He also posted an excerpt from a Complex Magazine interview where Rihanna talked about how she made her mom “pretty upset” when she smashed a glass bottle in her younger brother’s face.
Complex: Did you see 300?
Rihanna: [Deadly serious.] 300 is one of the best movies I have ever seen. The choreography, the fighting, the costumes, the production—phenomenal. I make everybody watch it.
Complex: So you didn’t think it was too violent.
Rihanna: Oh, not at all. That was the good part. I’m the oldest child with two brothers. We talk all the time now, but we used to fight—and when I say “fight,” I don’t mean arguments, I mean physically fight.
Complex: Who won?
Rihanna: I hit the older one in his face with a glass bottle.
Complex: Bokkle dem! Whoa. Remind me not to piss you off.
Rihanna: Yeah, my mom was pretty upset.
We’re just going to leave it at that and let you draw your own conclusions…
Also, Chris Brown released a statement following the 20/20 interview, maintaining his stance on keeping the details of the incident private. Too bad Rihanna didn’t get the memo beforehand.
“While I respect Rihanna’s right to discuss the specific events of February 8th, I maintain my position that all of the details should remain a private matter between us. I do appreciate her support and wish her the best.
“I am extremely sorry for what I did and I accept accountability for my actions. At this point I am taking the proper steps to learn about me and grow from my mistakes. I only hope that others in similar situations can learn from our experience as well.
“Abuse of any kind is always wrong. The rest, I leave it to God.”
